HTML is a two-day course that teaches you how to create web documents using HMTL, while preparing you for a smooth transition to XML-based XHTMLthe future of web publishing. We focus on reliable and forward-thinking practices of webpage design, including the use of Cascading Style Sheets, a technology complementary to HTML that is changing the face of web authoring. The course files provide solutions that are easy to grasp and represent realistic applications.
- Students who want to know how to build webpages from scratch or who wish to enhance and streamline the HTML code in their WYSIWYG page editor (Dreamweaver, GoLive, Front Page, etc.).
- You will learn how to use efficient HTML coding practices to create webpages that work and will continue to work in the ever-changing world of web development. In this course, you will learn concepts and do tasks that foster the transition from HTML to the most recent XML-based web authoring language recommendation, XHTML, which has become the current standard. You also have the benefit of being introduced to the power and control of Cascading Style Sheets.
